I Meant To Do My Work Today
by Richard Le Gallienne
I meant to do my work today,
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand--
So what could I do but laugh and go?

There are so many things that tell me that spring is here, like flowers.
And Nina's birthday on April 15th.
And other events that occur on April 15th, like deadlines.
And dreaming about what you will buy with your refund. Chelsea's choice? Upgrading from Mini Coopers to SUVs.
And nothing SCREAMS spring louder than the first marijuana seedling eradication raid of the season in our little northern California locale.

The sun is shining. The birds are singing. Seeds are bursting. Plants and trees are leafing and budding. In many ways, people are like plants...some bud early, others much later. Enjoy this season of growth!
